The smell of Apple Orchard tells the story of that very time when leaves are about to turn yellow, of apples falling free to the ground, of an abandoned apple orchard, where grow mixed together wild and cultivated apple-trees, of magical herbs, of cold earth and of fruit-tree firewood, burning with lazy but hot, pinkish flame.

Floral

Smells of flowers from all over the world. Blossoming flower-buds, bunches of flowers; flowers in garlands - all of them are enveloped in precious resins and woods. Sensual perfumes, full of drama and romance; each is different like flowers themselves.

1) Sea foam - white floral fragrance meets you with a soft green breeze, full of fresh young leaves and blooming orange trees. It enchants with soft exotic blossoms, and tender creamy colour of coffee-tree flowers makes tuberose even whiter. It feels like silky sea foam, foam of flowers, sweet almond milk and coconut. It softly whispers in your ear some careless words about endless summer and about warm seas, while it gracefully rolls on sandalwood shores.
Blackcurrant bud absolute, neroli, rose otto, coffe flower absolute, tuberose absolute, maisoya, sandalwood CO2 extract, vanilla, Tonka bean

2) White Silk - floral-oriental perfume, in which jasmine and sandalwood play the main parts. And the same way the seven colours of rainbow collected with a prism shine together with white glow of daylight, jasmine surrounded with mix of different flowers forms here a perfect white bouquet.
White Silk is a story of happiness, a melody filled with it. It’s about a perfect morning and the first cup of bergamot tea. Yellow fruits, apricot jam and milk cream added here with the nots of tuberose and osmanthus – lush and dainty. Bright citruses and heady jasmine in a deep ocean of sandalwood.
Extremely good if put on with spray, it gives joy in any weather.
Sandalwood CO2 extract, sandalwood essential oil, tuberose absolute, osmanthus absolute,
vanilla absolute, bergamot, neroli, rosewood, lemon, orris.

3) Winter Blush is a story of winter joys – to redden strolling in a frozen park, to warm up with mulled wine, to eat an orange while it snows outside. The perfume starts with bright accord of oranges; it blossoms with flowers, gets a little spicy with nuances of hard liquors and ends with a balsamic-woody base, warm and dry. There one can find a sea of roses as well as piquancy of spices and soft glow of thick winter wines.
Smell of Winter Blush is a miracle cure for depression any time of day, be it in a morning started on the wrong foot or at a party when all of a sudden you find yourself a little sad with no reason at all. In the cold Winter Blush’s flowers hesitate to show up, but as soon as you get into the warm it’s bright scarlet flowers bloom in all their glory.
A wise choice for a celebration or a party.
Orange, rose, jasmine, cinnamon, cognac, cardamom, vanilla, orris, benzoin, rosewood, cedarwood, labdanum, Peru balsam.

4) №3 – a perfume with a structure of a classic floral composition. A citric aromatic start, a tender all-floral heart with tuberoses, ylang and jasmine, and a woody-balsamic base with plenty of sandalwood.
Powder, tender like rose petals, candied violets, soft glittering of cut-glass, marshmallow, a lazy bliss. Porcelain figurines, a mug of hot cocoa. Muslin curtains turn first light of day into iris coloured twilight.
If sprayed, the perfume shows more powder, if dabbed – flower petals.
Bergamot, rose otto, rose de may, tuberose, ylang ylang, jasmine, sandalwood, benzoin, vanilla, orris, ambrette, labdanum, Tonka bean.

5) Tobacco Tuberose – a leather floral perfume. Green bitterness, milky-white flowers in a half-light of a library, soft clouds of tobacco smoke, cozy leather chairs, silence and comfort.
It is tobacco which surely leads in this duet. Warm and rich, the fragrance opens with bitter, slightly metallic green notes of violet leaves, they unfurl into dim old cabinet with a library. The cabinet is full of curling flows of tobacco pipe aromatic smoke. Then leather appears, warm and tactile, and then a sudden gust of wind brings heady, almost narcotic smell from a tall elegant bouquet of tuberoses. Try it on, find out who will lead on you – white flowers or tobacco-leather?
I advise to choose chilly dull weather to wear this perfume – it warms and comforts in a most subtle and pleasant way.
Wormwood, cistus, violet leaf, frankincense, tuberose, tobacco, rose de may, sandalwood, angelica root, orris, agarwood

6) Musk Rose – a transparent rose soliflore. Thicket of wild dog-roses, an enchanted castle, crinolines, lace and music, sparkling flames and cooling breeze. Falling in love in a whirlwind of petals.
A green grassy start is like a wind bringing you soft breath of citrus grove. Here is an armful of roses: centifolia, gallica, bulgarian and turkish roses. Small twirls of jasmine, osmanthus and orange blossom are like a delicate lace veil caught by a rose bush. Base notes are woven with transparent and warm resinous notes of labdanum absolute, milky and powdery orris root, sandalwood and ambrette.
It is the best to wear the perfume in a cool weather with some wind. It demands high sky and it will pay you off giving an easy, romantic mood.
Neroli, mimosa, roses, orange blossom, jasmine, osmanthus, ylang ylang, rosewood, cedarwood, labdanum, oakmoss, sandalwood, ambrette.

7) Black Gardenia – a floral leather perfume with spicy and animalic nuances.
It was Billie Holiday who often wore a gardenia flower in her hair. Black Gardenia is a perfume built of white flower petals contrasting with leather nuances of the base, it’s character is unpredictable yet smooth, just like real good oldschool jazz. It exudes aromas of tropic flowers, giving you a clear image of gardenia.
The flowers are set against a dark and dense fond with leather-animalic notes.
The perfume is especially enjoyable in the cold. You can dab some perfume on dark (be attentive! the perfume may stain light clothes!) wool-wear or furs – this way the sillage may be quite significant.
Sandalwood essential oil, tuberose absolute, vanilla absolute, neroli, orris, davana, frangipani, castoreum, roses, jasmine, ylang ylang.
IT'S ALSO AVAILABLE BOTANICAL VERSION OF THIS PERFUME! For botanical edition I use my own castoreum botanical base. Please, add note, if you want to purchase botanical version.

8) Jasmine and agarwood– an oriental floral-balsamic perfume. Softened with mimosa absolute, green smell of violet leaves and absinthe together make Jasmin and Agar sound unexpectedly European, in spite of traditionally oriental heart- and base notes.
It has dynamic, full of contrasts harmonic aroma. Passionate jasmine, sweet like late summer’s honey, and dense agarwood. Velvet, honey, bitterish smoke, an avalanche of white flowers, southern summer night. Golden glow and dark depths.
A wonderful perfume to wear in summer, it combines torrid heat of the afternoon with cooling breath of green meadows; bright lush flowers with exotic wood.


Warm and Enveloping

Warm, warming, enveloping perfumes. Spices and vanilla, silk and cashmere, flowers, honey and balsams.

1) Shiny Amber is sunshine in a bottle. A perfume about summer warm, about glowing resins and sunlight, hidden in the depths of ancient fossilized amber. The warm dence heart amber accord is surrounded by bright sweet citruses and honeylike flowers. It’s main amber accord has been composed with two types of amber: “vegetable amber” – sweet resins of different plants, and “animal amber” – genuine ambergris (here I used tinctured beach harvested ambergris from New Zealand)
The aroma is shimmering with all shades of amber, it warms and relaxes.
If dubbed, the perfume comes as rich and dense amber scent with a bright sweet start. Eau de parfum in spray-form is airy, light and very warm, like a cashmere-silk shawl. Shiny Amber could be the ideal choice to wear when the weather is nasty and gloomy. And it smells magnificent when it’s really cold!
Ginger, lemon, bergamot, yuzu, jasmine, champaka, benzoin, labdanum, vanilla, tonka bean, ambergris


2) Coffee and chocolate – a gourmand perfume. Sun and citruses in the first sip. Tart smoky coffee and bitter spicy chocolate. Time stops in equilibrium point of “now” and “forever”. All you feel is warmth and beat of life. It is a story about a morning glass of orange juice, freshly squeezed and zesty, about a cup of coffee with a biscuit late at night and about a liqueur-filled chocolate candy.
It’s aroma invigorates, brings hedonistic mood, it has tangible warm aura. If put on hair, makes a good sillage.
Bitter orange, frankincense, black pepper, coffee, cocoa, jasmine, roses, vanilla, sandalwood, labdanum, vetiver

3) My vanilla - this woody-balsamic perfume is not about cookies and buns at all. Anti-culinary vanilla, it tells stories of winds from afar, of ship planks, of spices and ardent heat of sand in the sun. Jasmine, orange blossom and ylang ylang create an impression of intoxicating aroma of tropical forest in bloom. Juniper berries and cedars suggest the presence of barrels of rum somewhere around. Dark caramel, resins, tar, fruits, leather – all those edges of vanilla’s smell which is often ignored by culinary aficionados.
It starts bright and spicy, blossoming with heat, gives warmth in the cold, invigorates and inspires.
Black pepper, clove, galbanum, elemi, juniper berry, nutmeg, jasmine, cumin, orange blossom, cardamom, cedarwood, vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood, orris, agarwood

4) Golden Lavender – a warm lavender perfume, where gold soft silky smooth lavender along with mimosa and cassia goes down to a soft base warmed with spices. Warm golden light, summer delights.
Golden Lavender is a small faithful helper in a fight with gloomy mood and winter blues. Lavender will help to cope with uneasiness, and the flowers will bring joy along.
The perfume embraces like soft cashmere, brings warmth like a glass of hot milk with spices, calms down and gladdens.
Bergamot, cassia, lemon, ginger lily, Bulgarian rose, lavender, jasmine, clary sage, ylang-ylang, rosewood, Peruvian balsam, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, angelica, labdanum.


5) Fallen Leaves - an autumn woody-balsamic perfume. Fallen leaves, slowly becoming nothing, almost devoid of festive colors of golden autumn, humid air, an occasional and already warmless ray of late autumn sun, sharp smell of cooling down earth, anguish and hope, while seeing-off warmth.
This perfume will bring nostalgia to ones and calm the others, reconciling them with inevitably approaching winter.
An aromatic bouquet of immortelle, hop and orris twines a comforting cocoon around you in moist air, bringing warmth and peace.
Cistus, frankincense, myrrh, tonka beans, hops, everlasting, Himalayan cedar, patchouli, cardamom, iris, vanilla.


Gothic

It is a collection for those who is fond of dark fairytales and mystery stories. Smells of marshes and deep woods, stale waters and abandoned castles, seaweed and damp wood.

1) Petals&Ashes is a perfume about eternal blooming of life withstanding inevitable flowing of time, about heaps of white petals and fragrant ashes. Softly shining white blossoms… Leaves and fruits are gently wrapped in aromatic smoke. Everything flows and the precious woods turn to ashes, ashes – to dust.
If you prefer a progressively developing aroma, it is better to get an EdP spray – you’ll get a bright fruity-floral accord slowly developing thin strands of fragrant smoke, when triumphant light of vegetative life unhurriedly fades to the smells of woods and rain soaked earth.
On the contrary with perfume in splash form you’ll get everything at once – both petals and ashes, a pure drama of our lives, a culminating point.
Yuzu, neroli, rose, jasmine, tuberose, frankincense, sandalwood, labdanum, spikenard, mitti attar (earth attar), agarwood attar (shamama attar) myrrh, angelica root.

2) Emerald Green is a bitter avant-garde perfume dedicated to the color of the same name. Sharp with icy sides and aromatic herbs. A bright floral heart of jasmine, orange blossom and lotus flower softly shines through boozy notes with absinth and herbs. The fond is dark, dense and mossy.
A very cold perfume, it tinkles with ice in the cold, blooms with flowers in humid air; and when it’s warm the foresty, mossy base is especially delicious.
Bitter almond, absinthe, cognac, galbanum, angelica seed, juniper, violet leaf, jasmine, orange blossom, white lotus, clove, cardamom, frankincense, sandalwood, labdanum, oakmoss, myrrh.

3) Without Words – a rich savory and spicy, flower-boozy perfume.
Without Words is a very vivid dance of rose and wormwood, telling very different stories depending on the weather and the wearer’s mood. Sharp, slightly dusty wormwood gives way to moist tipsy rose; absinth, rain and wind spin around showing passion now and bitterness then.
If put on with spray, the perfume gives long, noticeable sillage. Confectionery nuances show themselves in the warm, while in cool weather all you might feel is “l’absinthe au cognac”
Black pepper, bitter almond, absinthe, green pepper, davana, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, rose otto, cardamom, vetiver, labdanum, patchouli, ambrette, vanilla.


4) The dark side of the Goddess – a dark balsamic gothic perfume.
A story of dark side of soul, of what is covered by shadow. Smoke of sacral fire, hidden splashes of jasmine, humid earth, incense, backwoods. Ansinth, olibanum and spices are dizzying and sharpen perception. Jasmine, mimosa, tagetes smell dense and heady mixed with dark resins. The woody-balsamic base is dark and deep.
It is a perfume for meditation, for seclusion, a good companion to travel the dark pathways of one’s soul.
Myrtle, bay, cassia, nutmeg, frankincense, jasmine, tagetes, cedarwood, sandalwood, patchouli, myrrh.


5) Hue - an aromatic portrait of the city of Hue, the ancient capital of Vietnam. All the shades of grey stones and plaster. Grey bark of trees and pipals painted cream with spots of fungi and lichens. Bluish-white porcelain chips of mosaicked walls. Ancient roof-tiles, once terracotta, are all green now with moss. The green of leaves, of grass, of water plants, green of pond water, bright flowers of water hyacinth and sacred blue lotus. The carmine of old pagodas, wood of garden houses dark with time, bluish-green sides of huge incense burners, whitish-grey smoke of burning incense leaving soot on stone walls.

It is a very strange perfume, maybe the most difficult for understanding of all the others in the regular collection. First of all because it is more a portrait then a perfume. It’s very lasting, with noticeable sillage and troubled character. To feel the atmosphere of the place, even make things hyper realistic it’s better to wear the perfume in hot and humid weather. Then it works magic.
Mango leaf, violet leaf, seaweed, elemi, choya nakh, choya loban, choya ral, kewda, hop, jasmine, frangipani, pink lotus, juniper, rose, lavender, frankincense, agarwood, angelica, labdanum, oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver, mitti attar, sandalwood, saffron, myrrh.

6) Ghost house -a woody-balsamic perfume made specially for wearing in the mid-autumn.
This is a story about an old wooden house, with thick soft dust, creaky floorboards and winding stairs. Wind blowing through a broken window leaf touches the strings of an old grand piano, making them tremble soundly with sadness. Old coarsened bindings tightly hold pages, dry-cured by the adamant time. A blooming bush of wild roses in the autumn garden.
Cistus, frankincense, cassia, rose, patchouli, choya loban, agarwood, Guaiac wood, vetiver.

7) Venetian Red is a perfume dedicated to this pigment. The pigment is a darker shade of scarlet, derived from nearly pure ferric oxide. Red like blood, warm and totally enjoyable.
The perfume is a travel along dark narrow streets of a very old town, along slippery with slime and algae canal banks, along low seashores often submerged, when the sea breeze is chilly-fresh, the stones are cold and all the wood around is dried and tarred. The only tender thing on your way will be the red color of sudden rose petals added as a counterpoint.
Cold weather pulls forward the woody base, and the rose, as it should be, steps out only when it’s warm.
Seaweed, ambergris, nutmeg, neroli, rose, orange blossom, jasmine, oakmoss, patchouli, labdanum, angelica.

8) Nigredo - a thick woody-balsamic perfume. It is the soul of the dark, nature’s deep sleep, hidden movements of a soul. Melt and patterned they form a kind of Materia Prima – the base of all matter, the quintessence.
Nigredo, or “blackness” is the first pathway to the philosophers’s stone, when all alchemical ingredients are cleansed and then cooked together to a uniform black matter.
The story about humus, the beginning of everything matter, the beginning of time: dense, thick, bitter-sweet, with very interesting ingredients – tuberose, boletus absotule, vanilla, patchouli, spikenard, ciperus, green pepper and cognac oil.
Elemi, spikenard, frankincense, cognac, tuberose, rose, osmanthus, mushrooms, agarwood, castoreum, orris, opoponax, vetiver, vanilla, patchouli, oakmoss.

Leather

Perfume and curried leather are connected historically, and leather-themed fragrances have a long history. This collection is all about the smell of leather without any actual leather as an ingredient. It is about suede and leather, gloves and saddles… all kinds of leather and leathergoods.

1) Cuir de Russie - “Russian Leather” is a very traditional for leather theme in perfumery. Real russian leather is distinguished from any other by strictly required usage of Birch Tar in the process of oiling. Here in Cuir de Russie you’ll find this magnificent, powerful smoky tar. This is leather in the raw. Tarry, with tobacco, wormwood an castoreum. A universal leather.
It is a chypre with bright galbanum and bergamote start, a floral heart and a marvelous base composed of oakmoss, sweet labdanum absolute, patchouli and castoreum. Surrounded by tarry smoke, the flowers bloom – jasmine and roses, ylang-ylang and orange flower. And smell of leather reminds of horses, harness and autumn hunting.
The perfume is really good in any weather, but the warmer it is, the more tarry it will be.
Galbanum, lemon, bergamot, yuzu, absinthe, tar, orange blossom, rose de may, jasmine, ylang ylang, carnation, tobacco, oakmoss, patchouli, labdanum, vetiver, Vanuatu sandalwood, ambrette, castoreum, ambergris

2) The Second skin - soft leather-gourmand chypre. Theme of leather here is played softly: no tar, no smoke, but the thick aromas of flowers, tobacco and dried fruits are waving dense ornament instead. Quiet power, confidence, sudden touches, whispers, velvet skin- the perfume is extremely kinesthetic. It forms a cozy protective cocoon around it’s wearer in nasty weather, that let him forget about the winter at all.
If sprayed it shows more gourmand and flowery notes, and a greater sillage.
Bergamot, immortelle, carnation, tuberose, jasmine, ylang ylang, orange blossom, rose, cassia, black tea, cognac, tobacco, vanilla, castoreum, white cedar, sandalwood, labdanum, oakmoss, patchouli, ambrette

3) New Suede is a tender suede with bergamot start and woody-vanillic lining. Just flowers, a bit of tobacco smoke from the next room and a pair of gloves made of thinnest lambskin. Profane, lived-in aroma, very soft, very feminine. A silver cigarette case, acid-drops with some fruit flavor and a puff-box - in silk depths of a handbag. Osmanthus, lavender, sage, cardamom and rosewood play soft, velvety texture of fine suede.
It is ideal for fine autumn weather – gives tranquil optimistic mood and invigorates.
Sandalwood CO2-extract, sandalwood essential oil, tuberose absolute, osmanthus absolute, vanilla absolute, bergamot, neroli, rosewood, lemon, orris.

4) Revenge- a modern urban leather perfume. Leather, asphalt of city streets, and exotic lilies in hot summer air. Sharp like destroying jealousy and bitter like unanswered passion.
It shows, more or less obediently, leather; some wormwood with flowers; and gasoline exhaust of a landaulet in summer city… But unpredictable happens and it can draw you a sudden something, for example, a bouquet of lilies. Predatory tiger lilies wrapped in leather.
A perfume with many faces, it likes both heat and cold, seashore and desert sands, aire libre and scalding concrete jungle of a city.
Galbanum, wormwood, bergamot, estragon, neroli, jasmine, ylang ylang, roses, white cedar, choya loban, tobacco, vanilla, labdanum, orris, oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver.

5) Young Cossak - a leather aromatic chypre. Clopping of horse hooves, dust, smoke, steppe covered with thyme and absinthe. Heat haze, leather gloves, saddles and harness, tobacco and honey, flowering hawthorn hedge grow, - and the road again, with a reward - a long evening by the hearth - ahead.
A perfume-landscape, it has heroes – men and horses, as well as vastness of flatlands, and a day-long passing of the sun in the sky. Surprisingly, but whole the story started off with an image of sheaf of dry aromatic wormwood forgotten with a leather glove…
Wormwood, thyme, oregano, immortelle, vetiver, oakmoss - all the shades of brown and green.
Galbanum, absinthe, davana, tarragon, thyme, lavender, cumin, frankincense, immortelle, tobacco, vetiver, oakmoss, costus, agarwood.


6) Secret dreams - leather perfume that opens the door of you inner private chamber. What desires or fears are kept hidden in the depth of a heart? What dreams slips away faster then could be clothed in words? A key on a leather string can open the room, perfume can catch elusive dreams into it’s nets. Leather, cognac, spices, dark woods.
Juniper, clove, black pepper, cumin, davana, cognac, tobacco, rose, osmanthus, cardamom, immortelle, castoreum, saffron, patchouli, oakmoss, myrrh, labdanum, cedarwood.

REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS AND PERFUME CRITICS:

Luca Turin is one of the most respected fragrance critics in the entire world: «I find Anna Zworykina‘ fragrances very impressive indeed, and largely immune from the mushiness of most natural perfumery. Wisely, she seems to stick to classical forms and puts her skill into making them work optimally. Verdigris, for example, is a resplendent, stonking chypre. You can clearly smell the superb bergamot, cistus and oakmoss singing in harmony. Young Cossack (in Russia Cossacks have a more positive reputation than abroad) is a lovely animalic hay-tonka accord that would make a wonderful masculine, with or without sabre and horse. Her Cuir de Russie is the most eccentric of that name I remember smelling, very floral and less smoky than the usual fare, with a strange and beautiful sweet-green drydown. In the end, empirical evidence prevails: these are perfumes that even a fan of synthetics like me would love to wear.»

Ayala Moriel, Perfumeur: "Anna Zworykina Perfumes' My Vanilla is a juicy bundle of cured vanilla beans whose sweetness is cut by green lentsicus leaves and smouldering incense. Through the thick smoke you can feel an exotic sweetness that is surprisingly floral - not at all gourmand as one would expect from anything containing "vanilla" in its title. It is spicy, exotic, narcotic. While I can see how vanilla migh`t have been a starting point for this fragrance - the result is not vanilla-dominated. Rather, it is a voluptuous oriental, influenced by the bombastic nature of Shalimar: burnt sugar and sweet spices are balanced with intensely smoky and slightly animalic choya nakh (destructive distillation of seashells) smoky-woody cedar to counterpoint the sweetness and pastry association, and perfumed with indolic jasmine and buttery orris and tonka beans. A very interesting addition to my gradually growing list of favourite all-natural perfumes. At first, My Vanilla has a strong, almost heavy presence - yet is utterly enjoyable to wear. The kind of scent that requires a special occasion. But of course like a good oriental, it fades into the softest, sweet whisper of vanilla. "

Erica Golding‎, «Australian Perfume Junkies» сontributor: "They're really fascinating and unusual and they get locked into your head. I need to try more!"

"All the perfumes of hers that I've smelled were of a similar style and character: sophisticated, intriguing, purely natural, with depth and complexity that is usually achieved by incorporating house-made botanical tinctures."

"These samples are truly excellent. They are complex, sophisticated, and evocative--fine achievements in perfumery! "

«Anna's perfume making skills are amazing. In my pack I chose Fallen Leaves, Wind from mount Kailash, My Vanilla, Second Skin and Green Madness. Every single one of them is a master piece, a journey, a story, a dream. I would like to write about all of them individually, but the review space doesn't allow me to. They are all very curious in their own way, like only handmade perfumes can, but also very strong, so spraying it in the air in front of you and then walking through it is a better choice than spraying them directly on you. Definitely worth the money, and I am yearning to order more. My favourite was Wind from mount Kailash, so herby and thyme-y, but still cold and deep. Like magic in a bottle.»

«Anna Zworykina is not only a perfumer, she is an artist. Her perfumes are liquid art. She is especially good when she works with themes such as sadness, sorrow, things lost, decay and melancholia in her perfumes. The scents are so evocative, unique, creative and beautiful, and of such good quality. Sillage is fabulous, and so is the longevity of her creations.»

«An absolutely precious little collection of stories in a bottle. I have only tried two out of 6 (thank you for the extra sample!), but I am already in love, and I want to make the introductions last a little longer. The fragrances are marvellosuly intricate, interesting, unexpected, made to fuel the imagination. I love the smokiness, the absence of sugar-sweetness. These perfumes are very grown-up, mature, perfectly sophisticated.»

5) Apple Orchard – is a fruity Chypre. The smell of Apple Orchard tells the story of that very time when leaves are about to turn yellow, of apples falling free to the ground, of an abandoned apple orchard, where grow mixed together wild and cultivated apple-trees, of magical herbs, of cold earth and of fruit-tree firewood, burning with lazy but hot, pinkish flame.
Autumn is the best season to wear it, whether it is sunny or rainy.

6) A lavender fougere. Clear sky, first green leaves, spring wind brings cooling murmur of the river. The life is all yours to live.
This clear and very clean transparent fragrance demands high clear sky and cool but not chilly weather. Spray it if what you want is incense, roses and orris, or dab it if all you want is lavender. It grounds very well, calms down and sets you into meditative mood.
Galbanum, rosemary, absinthe, yuzu, frankincense, elemi, sage, lavender, rose de may, jasmine, orris, labdanum, oakmoss, opoponax, sandalwood.

7) Currant mood - Blackcurrant chypre. It’s a story of summer warmth, that comes to replace wild spring. It is a vivid mix of blackcurrant tea, green tomato leaves, jasmine and garden rose blossoms on a chypre base, smelling of a mysterious forest. Currant mood will blow you back to spring and green flourish even form the darkest and coldest winter.
If dabbed, the perfume shows more green buds, lush vegetation and tea notes with old wood and forest with dark moss. If sprayed – more blossoms, warm summer light, and sillage is airy and pleasant.
Blackcurrant bud, tomato leaves, bergamot, rose, jasmine, green tea, lavender, labdanum, oakmoss, vetiver


Floral

Smells of flowers from all over the world. Blossoming flower-buds, bunches of flowers; flowers in garlands - all of them are enveloped in precious resins and woods. Sensual perfumes, full of drama and romance; each is different like flowers themselves.

1) Sea foam - white floral fragrance meets you with a soft green breeze, full of fresh young leaves and blooming orange trees. It enchants with soft exotic blossoms, and tender creamy colour of coffee-tree flowers makes tuberose even whiter. It feels like silky sea foam, foam of flowers, sweet almond milk and coconut. It softly whispers in your ear some careless words about endless summer and about warm seas, while it gracefully rolls on sandalwood shores.
Blackcurrant bud absolute, neroli, rose otto, coffe flower absolute, tuberose absolute, maisoya, sandalwood CO2 extract, vanilla, Tonka bean

2) White Silk - floral-oriental perfume, in which jasmine and sandalwood play the main parts. And the same way the seven colours of rainbow collected with a prism shine together with white glow of daylight, jasmine surrounded with mix of different flowers forms here a perfect white bouquet.
White Silk is a story of happiness, a melody filled with it. It’s about a perfect morning and the first cup of bergamot tea. Yellow fruits, apricot jam and milk cream added here with the nots of tuberose and osmanthus – lush and dainty. Bright citruses and heady jasmine in a deep ocean of sandalwood.
Extremely good if put on with spray, it gives joy in any weather.
Sandalwood CO2 extract, sandalwood essential oil, tuberose absolute, osmanthus absolute,
vanilla absolute, bergamot, neroli, rosewood, lemon, orris.

3) Winter Blush is a story of winter joys – to redden strolling in a frozen park, to warm up with mulled wine, to eat an orange while it snows outside. The perfume starts with bright accord of oranges; it blossoms with flowers, gets a little spicy with nuances of hard liquors and ends with a balsamic-woody base, warm and dry. There one can find a sea of roses as well as piquancy of spices and soft glow of thick winter wines.
Smell of Winter Blush is a miracle cure for depression any time of day, be it in a morning started on the wrong foot or at a party when all of a sudden you find yourself a little sad with no reason at all. In the cold Winter Blush’s flowers hesitate to show up, but as soon as you get into the warm it’s bright scarlet flowers bloom in all their glory.
A wise choice for a celebration or a party.
Orange, rose, jasmine, cinnamon, cognac, cardamom, vanilla, orris, benzoin, rosewood, cedarwood, labdanum, Peru balsam.

4) №3 – a perfume with a structure of a classic floral composition. A citric aromatic start, a tender all-floral heart with tuberoses, ylang and jasmine, and a woody-balsamic base with plenty of sandalwood.
Powder, tender like rose petals, candied violets, soft glittering of cut-glass, marshmallow, a lazy bliss. Porcelain figurines, a mug of hot cocoa. Muslin curtains turn first light of day into iris coloured twilight.
If sprayed, the perfume shows more powder, if dabbed – flower petals.
Bergamot, rose otto, rose de may, tuberose, ylang ylang, jasmine, sandalwood, benzoin, vanilla, orris, ambrette, labdanum, Tonka bean.

5) Tobacco Tuberose – a leather floral perfume. Green bitterness, milky-white flowers in a half-light of a library, soft clouds of tobacco smoke, cozy leather chairs, silence and comfort.
It is tobacco which surely leads in this duet. Warm and rich, the fragrance opens with bitter, slightly metallic green notes of violet leaves, they unfurl into dim old cabinet with a library. The cabinet is full of curling flows of tobacco pipe aromatic smoke. Then leather appears, warm and tactile, and then a sudden gust of wind brings heady, almost narcotic smell from a tall elegant bouquet of tuberoses. Try it on, find out who will lead on you – white flowers or tobacco-leather?
I advise to choose chilly dull weather to wear this perfume – it warms and comforts in a most subtle and pleasant way.
Wormwood, cistus, violet leaf, frankincense, tuberose, tobacco, rose de may, sandalwood, angelica root, orris, agarwood

6) Musk Rose – a transparent rose soliflore. Thicket of wild dog-roses, an enchanted castle, crinolines, lace and music, sparkling flames and cooling breeze. Falling in love in a whirlwind of petals.
A green grassy start is like a wind bringing you soft breath of citrus grove. Here is an armful of roses: centifolia, gallica, bulgarian and turkish roses. Small twirls of jasmine, osmanthus and orange blossom are like a delicate lace veil caught by a rose bush. Base notes are woven with transparent and warm resinous notes of labdanum absolute, milky and powdery orris root, sandalwood and ambrette.
It is the best to wear the perfume in a cool weather with some wind. It demands high sky and it will pay you off giving an easy, romantic mood.
Neroli, mimosa, roses, orange blossom, jasmine, osmanthus, ylang ylang, rosewood, cedarwood, labdanum, oakmoss, sandalwood, ambrette.

7) Black Gardenia – a floral leather perfume with spicy and animalic nuances.
It was Billie Holiday who often wore a gardenia flower in her hair. Black Gardenia is a perfume built of white flower petals contrasting with leather nuances of the base, it’s character is unpredictable yet smooth, just like real good oldschool jazz. It exudes aromas of tropic flowers, giving you a clear image of gardenia.
The flowers are set against a dark and dense fond with leather-animalic notes.
The perfume is especially enjoyable in the cold. You can dab some perfume on dark (be attentive! the perfume may stain light clothes!) wool-wear or furs – this way the sillage may be quite significant.
Sandalwood essential oil, tuberose absolute, vanilla absolute, neroli, orris, davana, frangipani, castoreum, roses, jasmine, ylang ylang.
IT'S ALSO AVAILABLE BOTANICAL VERSION OF THIS PERFUME! For botanical edition I use my own castoreum botanical base. Please, add note, if you want to purchase botanical version.

8) Jasmine and agarwood– an oriental floral-balsamic perfume. Softened with mimosa absolute, green smell of violet leaves and absinthe together make Jasmin and Agar sound unexpectedly European, in spite of traditionally oriental heart- and base notes.
It has dynamic, full of contrasts harmonic aroma. Passionate jasmine, sweet like late summer’s honey, and dense agarwood. Velvet, honey, bitterish smoke, an avalanche of white flowers, southern summer night. Golden glow and dark depths.
A wonderful perfume to wear in summer, it combines torrid heat of the afternoon with cooling breath of green meadows; bright lush flowers with exotic wood.


Warm and Enveloping

Warm, warming, enveloping perfumes. Spices and vanilla, silk and cashmere, flowers, honey and balsams.

1) Shiny Amber is sunshine in a bottle. A perfume about summer warm, about glowing resins and sunlight, hidden in the depths of ancient fossilized amber. The warm dence heart amber accord is surrounded by bright sweet citruses and honeylike flowers. It’s main amber accord has been composed with two types of amber: “vegetable amber” – sweet resins of different plants, and “animal amber” – genuine ambergris (here I used tinctured beach harvested ambergris from New Zealand)
The aroma is shimmering with all shades of amber, it warms and relaxes.
If dubbed, the perfume comes as rich and dense amber scent with a bright sweet start. Eau de parfum in spray-form is airy, light and very warm, like a cashmere-silk shawl. Shiny Amber could be the ideal choice to wear when the weather is nasty and gloomy. And it smells magnificent when it’s really cold!
Ginger, lemon, bergamot, yuzu, jasmine, champaka, benzoin, labdanum, vanilla, tonka bean, ambergris


2) Coffee and chocolate – a gourmand perfume. Sun and citruses in the first sip. Tart smoky coffee and bitter spicy chocolate. Time stops in equilibrium point of “now” and “forever”. All you feel is warmth and beat of life. It is a story about a morning glass of orange juice, freshly squeezed and zesty, about a cup of coffee with a biscuit late at night and about a liqueur-filled chocolate candy.
It’s aroma invigorates, brings hedonistic mood, it has tangible warm aura. If put on hair, makes a good sillage.
Bitter orange, frankincense, black pepper, coffee, cocoa, jasmine, roses, vanilla, sandalwood, labdanum, vetiver

3) My vanilla - this woody-balsamic perfume is not about cookies and buns at all. Anti-culinary vanilla, it tells stories of winds from afar, of ship planks, of spices and ardent heat of sand in the sun. Jasmine, orange blossom and ylang ylang create an impression of intoxicating aroma of tropical forest in bloom. Juniper berries and cedars suggest the presence of barrels of rum somewhere around. Dark caramel, resins, tar, fruits, leather – all those edges of vanilla’s smell which is often ignored by culinary aficionados.
It starts bright and spicy, blossoming with heat, gives warmth in the cold, invigorates and inspires.
Black pepper, clove, galbanum, elemi, juniper berry, nutmeg, jasmine, cumin, orange blossom, cardamom, cedarwood, vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood, orris, agarwood

4) Golden Lavender – a warm lavender perfume, where gold soft silky smooth lavender along with mimosa and cassia goes down to a soft base warmed with spices. Warm golden light, summer delights.
Golden Lavender is a small faithful helper in a fight with gloomy mood and winter blues. Lavender will help to cope with uneasiness, and the flowers will bring joy along.
The perfume embraces like soft cashmere, brings warmth like a glass of hot milk with spices, calms down and gladdens.
Bergamot, cassia, lemon, ginger lily, Bulgarian rose, lavender, jasmine, clary sage, ylang-ylang, rosewood, Peruvian balsam, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, angelica, labdanum.


5) Fallen Leaves - an autumn woody-balsamic perfume. Fallen leaves, slowly becoming nothing, almost devoid of festive colors of golden autumn, humid air, an occasional and already warmless ray of late autumn sun, sharp smell of cooling down earth, anguish and hope, while seeing-off warmth.
This perfume will bring nostalgia to ones and calm the others, reconciling them with inevitably approaching winter.
An aromatic bouquet of immortelle, hop and orris twines a comforting cocoon around you in moist air, bringing warmth and peace.
Cistus, frankincense, myrrh, tonka beans, hops, everlasting, Himalayan cedar, patchouli, cardamom, iris, vanilla.


Gothic

It is a collection for those who is fond of dark fairytales and mystery stories. Smells of marshes and deep woods, stale waters and abandoned castles, seaweed and damp wood.

1) Petals&Ashes is a perfume about eternal blooming of life withstanding inevitable flowing of time, about heaps of white petals and fragrant ashes. Softly shining white blossoms… Leaves and fruits are gently wrapped in aromatic smoke. Everything flows and the precious woods turn to ashes, ashes – to dust.
If you prefer a progressively developing aroma, it is better to get an EdP spray – you’ll get a bright fruity-floral accord slowly developing thin strands of fragrant smoke, when triumphant light of vegetative life unhurriedly fades to the smells of woods and rain soaked earth.
On the contrary with perfume in splash form you’ll get everything at once – both petals and ashes, a pure drama of our lives, a culminating point.
Yuzu, neroli, rose, jasmine, tuberose, frankincense, sandalwood, labdanum, spikenard, mitti attar (earth attar), agarwood attar (shamama attar) myrrh, angelica root.

2) Emerald Green is a bitter avant-garde perfume dedicated to the color of the same name. Sharp with icy sides and aromatic herbs. A bright floral heart of jasmine, orange blossom and lotus flower softly shines through boozy notes with absinth and herbs. The fond is dark, dense and mossy.
A very cold perfume, it tinkles with ice in the cold, blooms with flowers in humid air; and when it’s warm the foresty, mossy base is especially delicious.
Bitter almond, absinthe, cognac, galbanum, angelica seed, juniper, violet leaf, jasmine, orange blossom, white lotus, clove, cardamom, frankincense, sandalwood, labdanum, oakmoss, myrrh.

3) Without Words – a rich savory and spicy, flower-boozy perfume.
Without Words is a very vivid dance of rose and wormwood, telling very different stories depending on the weather and the wearer’s mood. Sharp, slightly dusty wormwood gives way to moist tipsy rose; absinth, rain and wind spin around showing passion now and bitterness then.
If put on with spray, the perfume gives long, noticeable sillage. Confectionery nuances show themselves in the warm, while in cool weather all you might feel is “l’absinthe au cognac”
Black pepper, bitter almond, absinthe, green pepper, davana, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, rose otto, cardamom, vetiver, labdanum, patchouli, ambrette, vanilla.


4) The dark side of the Goddess – a dark balsamic gothic perfume.
A story of dark side of soul, of what is covered by shadow. Smoke of sacral fire, hidden splashes of jasmine, humid earth, incense, backwoods. Ansinth, olibanum and spices are dizzying and sharpen perception. Jasmine, mimosa, tagetes smell dense and heady mixed with dark resins. The woody-balsamic base is dark and deep.
It is a perfume for meditation, for seclusion, a good companion to travel the dark pathways of one’s soul.
Myrtle, bay, cassia, nutmeg, frankincense, jasmine, tagetes, cedarwood, sandalwood, patchouli, myrrh.


5) Hue - an aromatic portrait of the city of Hue, the ancient capital of Vietnam. All the shades of grey stones and plaster. Grey bark of trees and pipals painted cream with spots of fungi and lichens. Bluish-white porcelain chips of mosaicked walls. Ancient roof-tiles, once terracotta, are all green now with moss. The green of leaves, of grass, of water plants, green of pond water, bright flowers of water hyacinth and sacred blue lotus. The carmine of old pagodas, wood of garden houses dark with time, bluish-green sides of huge incense burners, whitish-grey smoke of burning incense leaving soot on stone walls.

It is a very strange perfume, maybe the most difficult for understanding of all the others in the regular collection. First of all because it is more a portrait then a perfume. It’s very lasting, with noticeable sillage and troubled character. To feel the atmosphere of the place, even make things hyper realistic it’s better to wear the perfume in hot and humid weather. Then it works magic.
Mango leaf, violet leaf, seaweed, elemi, choya nakh, choya loban, choya ral, kewda, hop, jasmine, frangipani, pink lotus, juniper, rose, lavender, frankincense, agarwood, angelica, labdanum, oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver, mitti attar, sandalwood, saffron, myrrh.

6) Ghost house -a woody-balsamic perfume made specially for wearing in the mid-autumn.
This is a story about an old wooden house, with thick soft dust, creaky floorboards and winding stairs. Wind blowing through a broken window leaf touches the strings of an old grand piano, making them tremble soundly with sadness. Old coarsened bindings tightly hold pages, dry-cured by the adamant time. A blooming bush of wild roses in the autumn garden.
Cistus, frankincense, cassia, rose, patchouli, choya loban, agarwood, Guaiac wood, vetiver.

7) Venetian Red is a perfume dedicated to this pigment. The pigment is a darker shade of scarlet, derived from nearly pure ferric oxide. Red like blood, warm and totally enjoyable.
The perfume is a travel along dark narrow streets of a very old town, along slippery with slime and algae canal banks, along low seashores often submerged, when the sea breeze is chilly-fresh, the stones are cold and all the wood around is dried and tarred. The only tender thing on your way will be the red color of sudden rose petals added as a counterpoint.
Cold weather pulls forward the woody base, and the rose, as it should be, steps out only when it’s warm.
Seaweed, ambergris, nutmeg, neroli, rose, orange blossom, jasmine, oakmoss, patchouli, labdanum, angelica.

8) Nigredo - a thick woody-balsamic perfume. It is the soul of the dark, nature’s deep sleep, hidden movements of a soul. Melt and patterned they form a kind of Materia Prima – the base of all matter, the quintessence.
Nigredo, or “blackness” is the first pathway to the philosophers’s stone, when all alchemical ingredients are cleansed and then cooked together to a uniform black matter.
The story about humus, the beginning of everything matter, the beginning of time: dense, thick, bitter-sweet, with very interesting ingredients – tuberose, boletus absotule, vanilla, patchouli, spikenard, ciperus, green pepper and cognac oil.
Elemi, spikenard, frankincense, cognac, tuberose, rose, osmanthus, mushrooms, agarwood, castoreum, orris, opoponax, vetiver, vanilla, patchouli, oakmoss.

Leather

Perfume and curried leather are connected historically, and leather-themed fragrances have a long history. This collection is all about the smell of leather without any actual leather as an ingredient. It is about suede and leather, gloves and saddles… all kinds of leather and leathergoods.

1) Cuir de Russie - “Russian Leather” is a very traditional for leather theme in perfumery. Real russian leather is distinguished from any other by strictly required usage of Birch Tar in the process of oiling. Here in Cuir de Russie you’ll find this magnificent, powerful smoky tar. This is leather in the raw. Tarry, with tobacco, wormwood an castoreum. A universal leather.
It is a chypre with bright galbanum and bergamote start, a floral heart and a marvelous base composed of oakmoss, sweet labdanum absolute, patchouli and castoreum. Surrounded by tarry smoke, the flowers bloom – jasmine and roses, ylang-ylang and orange flower. And smell of leather reminds of horses, harness and autumn hunting.
The perfume is really good in any weather, but the warmer it is, the more tarry it will be.
Galbanum, lemon, bergamot, yuzu, absinthe, tar, orange blossom, rose de may, jasmine, ylang ylang, carnation, tobacco, oakmoss, patchouli, labdanum, vetiver, Vanuatu sandalwood, ambrette, castoreum, ambergris

2) The Second skin - soft leather-gourmand chypre. Theme of leather here is played softly: no tar, no smoke, but the thick aromas of flowers, tobacco and dried fruits are waving dense ornament instead. Quiet power, confidence, sudden touches, whispers, velvet skin- the perfume is extremely kinesthetic. It forms a cozy protective cocoon around it’s wearer in nasty weather, that let him forget about the winter at all.
If sprayed it shows more gourmand and flowery notes, and a greater sillage.
Bergamot, immortelle, carnation, tuberose, jasmine, ylang ylang, orange blossom, rose, cassia, black tea, cognac, tobacco, vanilla, castoreum, white cedar, sandalwood, labdanum, oakmoss, patchouli, ambrette

3) New Suede is a tender suede with bergamot start and woody-vanillic lining. Just flowers, a bit of tobacco smoke from the next room and a pair of gloves made of thinnest lambskin. Profane, lived-in aroma, very soft, very feminine. A silver cigarette case, acid-drops with some fruit flavor and a puff-box - in silk depths of a handbag. Osmanthus, lavender, sage, cardamom and rosewood play soft, velvety texture of fine suede.
It is ideal for fine autumn weather – gives tranquil optimistic mood and invigorates.
Sandalwood CO2-extract, sandalwood essential oil, tuberose absolute, osmanthus absolute, vanilla absolute, bergamot, neroli, rosewood, lemon, orris.

4) Revenge- a modern urban leather perfume. Leather, asphalt of city streets, and exotic lilies in hot summer air. Sharp like destroying jealousy and bitter like unanswered passion.
It shows, more or less obediently, leather; some wormwood with flowers; and gasoline exhaust of a landaulet in summer city… But unpredictable happens and it can draw you a sudden something, for example, a bouquet of lilies. Predatory tiger lilies wrapped in leather.
A perfume with many faces, it likes both heat and cold, seashore and desert sands, aire libre and scalding concrete jungle of a city.
Galbanum, wormwood, bergamot, estragon, neroli, jasmine, ylang ylang, roses, white cedar, choya loban, tobacco, vanilla, labdanum, orris, oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver.

5) Young Cossak - a leather aromatic chypre. Clopping of horse hooves, dust, smoke, steppe covered with thyme and absinthe. Heat haze, leather gloves, saddles and harness, tobacco and honey, flowering hawthorn hedge grow, - and the road again, with a reward - a long evening by the hearth - ahead.
A perfume-landscape, it has heroes – men and horses, as well as vastness of flatlands, and a day-long passing of the sun in the sky. Surprisingly, but whole the story started off with an image of sheaf of dry aromatic wormwood forgotten with a leather glove…
Wormwood, thyme, oregano, immortelle, vetiver, oakmoss - all the shades of brown and green.
Galbanum, absinthe, davana, tarragon, thyme, lavender, cumin, frankincense, immortelle, tobacco, vetiver, oakmoss, costus, agarwood.


6) Secret dreams - leather perfume that opens the door of you inner private chamber. What desires or fears are kept hidden in the depth of a heart? What dreams slips away faster then could be clothed in words? A key on a leather string can open the room, perfume can catch elusive dreams into it’s nets. Leather, cognac, spices, dark woods.
Juniper, clove, black pepper, cumin, davana, cognac, tobacco, rose, osmanthus, cardamom, immortelle, castoreum, saffron, patchouli, oakmoss, myrrh, labdanum, cedarwood.

REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS AND PERFUME CRITICS:

Luca Turin is one of the most respected fragrance critics in the entire world: «I find Anna Zworykina‘ fragrances very impressive indeed, and largely immune from the mushiness of most natural perfumery. Wisely, she seems to stick to classical forms and puts her skill into making them work optimally. Verdigris, for example, is a resplendent, stonking chypre. You can clearly smell the superb bergamot, cistus and oakmoss singing in harmony. Young Cossack (in Russia Cossacks have a more positive reputation than abroad) is a lovely animalic hay-tonka accord that would make a wonderful masculine, with or without sabre and horse. Her Cuir de Russie is the most eccentric of that name I remember smelling, very floral and less smoky than the usual fare, with a strange and beautiful sweet-green drydown. In the end, empirical evidence prevails: these are perfumes that even a fan of synthetics like me would love to wear.»

Ayala Moriel, Perfumeur: "Anna Zworykina Perfumes' My Vanilla is a juicy bundle of cured vanilla beans whose sweetness is cut by green lentsicus leaves and smouldering incense. Through the thick smoke you can feel an exotic sweetness that is surprisingly floral - not at all gourmand as one would expect from anything containing "vanilla" in its title. It is spicy, exotic, narcotic. While I can see how vanilla migh`t have been a starting point for this fragrance - the result is not vanilla-dominated. Rather, it is a voluptuous oriental, influenced by the bombastic nature of Shalimar: burnt sugar and sweet spices are balanced with intensely smoky and slightly animalic choya nakh (destructive distillation of seashells) smoky-woody cedar to counterpoint the sweetness and pastry association, and perfumed with indolic jasmine and buttery orris and tonka beans. A very interesting addition to my gradually growing list of favourite all-natural perfumes. At first, My Vanilla has a strong, almost heavy presence - yet is utterly enjoyable to wear. The kind of scent that requires a special occasion. But of course like a good oriental, it fades into the softest, sweet whisper of vanilla. "

Erica Golding‎, «Australian Perfume Junkies» сontributor: "They're really fascinating and unusual and they get locked into your head. I need to try more!"

"All the perfumes of hers that I've smelled were of a similar style and character: sophisticated, intriguing, purely natural, with depth and complexity that is usually achieved by incorporating house-made botanical tinctures."

"These samples are truly excellent. They are complex, sophisticated, and evocative--fine achievements in perfumery! "

«Anna's perfume making skills are amazing. In my pack I chose Fallen Leaves, Wind from mount Kailash, My Vanilla, Second Skin and Green Madness. Every single one of them is a master piece, a journey, a story, a dream. I would like to write about all of them individually, but the review space doesn't allow me to. They are all very curious in their own way, like only handmade perfumes can, but also very strong, so spraying it in the air in front of you and then walking through it is a better choice than spraying them directly on you. Definitely worth the money, and I am yearning to order more. My favourite was Wind from mount Kailash, so herby and thyme-y, but still cold and deep. Like magic in a bottle.»

«Anna Zworykina is not only a perfumer, she is an artist. Her perfumes are liquid art. She is especially good when she works with themes such as sadness, sorrow, things lost, decay and melancholia in her perfumes. The scents are so evocative, unique, creative and beautiful, and of such good quality. Sillage is fabulous, and so is the longevity of her creations.»

«An absolutely precious little collection of stories in a bottle. I have only tried two out of 6 (thank you for the extra sample!), but I am already in love, and I want to make the introductions last a little longer. The fragrances are marvellosuly intricate, interesting, unexpected, made to fuel the imagination. I love the smokiness, the absence of sugar-sweetness. These perfumes are very grown-up, mature, perfectly sophisticated.»

No the WINDS OF MOUNT KALISH on Sunday, or maybe MY VANILLA? MY VANILLA don't expect vanilla it's a bon voyage kiss of it that leaves the station and departs to a kaleidoscope of evocation. I wondered about Russia and where my people came from? I passed through my great grandmother’s kitchen in a tangle of spices, camphorous and peppered. There were fields and vistas with cumin exalted against jasmine in a divine exhalation. All intoxicating.
